Traxxas XO-1 100+mph RC Car

Traxxas XO-1 100 mph RC car

What is it? Why do you want it? Where can you get it? How much?
very fast RC car stupidly quick, well built Traxxas $699

At 27 inches (68 cm) long and 12 inches (30 cm) wide, the Traxxas XO-1 is a bit of a beast. The 1:7 scale makes it noticeably larger than most hobby RC cars. But this extra size also helps make it more stable at the extreme speeds itís capable of. The body was designed using computer modeling techniques to make sure it was aerodynamic and provided plenty of downforce. The XO-1 is the first off-the-shelf RC car to feature a fully developed and functional air-management system.

However the Traxxas X0-1's real selling point is the fact it's the fastest ready-to-run radio controlled car in the world. Straight out of the box it can do 100+ mph, and the 0-60 time of 2.3 seconds is faster than the majority of multi-million dollar supercars.

But the Traxxas X0-1 isnít just about putting the biggest electric motor possible into an RC car. It also has an extremely advanced 2.4GHz radio system with an iPhone dock for relaying telemetry on the car and providing on-the-fly tuning potential. The system displays real-time data such as speed, RPM, temperature, and battery voltage.

The chassis of the Traxxas XO-1 remote control car is made from 3mm thick aluminium, which should help in the event of a crash. Although it's probably not going to cope too well if you barrel it into a brick wall at 100 mph! Many of the drivetrain and steering components are also precision machined out of aluminium to provide a balance between high strength and low weight.
